While we wait for September 5 for 'Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral,' the sequel to the highly successful historical biopic 'Heneral Luna,' director Jerrold Tarog presents a short film that connects the two movies.

'Angelito' is a 20-minute short film now available online, and follows the story of brothers two days after the death of Antonio Luna. The short stars Tomas Santos, Alex Medina, and Art Acuna, and also features Carlo Aquino, Arron Villaflor, and Jojit Lorenzo. The film fills in the gap between Heneral Luna and Goyo, and is loosely based on historial events.

Not the heroic, flag waving, valor laden inspirational movie that most audiences may expect. Instead, director Jerrold Tarog and his fine team presents a fresh, rich portrait of our country's heroes; humanizing them, uprooting the Filipino culture of idolatry and taking the revered down from their high pedestals. It's a character study of a hero held in high esteem by most, and yet deeply egoistic, flawed and fallible inside, with questionable motivations that may not be as heroic or nationalistic as they may seem. It's also a cautionary tale of Philippine history, a strong reminder that we as a people are not learning from the lessons of the past. The film entails critical reflection on ourselves as Filipinos, how we choose our heroes and what it really means to be nationalistic. Technical and production merits are all outstanding. The script in particular is excellent in how it peels down the layers of the multiple characters to expose their human mistakes and yet ultimately presenting a film that upholds true love for the country.

Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral (Jerrold Tarog) *** - This is the sequel of sorts to director Jerrold Tarog's previous historical epic Heneral Luna. It continues the historical narrative and focuses this time on Gregorio del Pilar, the titular "Goyo", who was a general in the Philippine army at 23 and was leading the fight in the Philippine-American war. Again, this film is very slickly and beautifully made with some good performances. I appreciate the fact that it humanizes the people involved and refuses to deify them. The Tirad Pass sequence (if you know Philippine history growing us, you will be familiar with this) is particularly effective. It's not a game changer but it's solid.

How does this compare to the Carlo J. Caparas film? LOL.

Beautiful production, but Goyo, as a character in this film, lacked agency. He walks into scenes and has absolutely no contribution to anything, other than to serve as the reference for other characters to make their decisions and their plot-changing actions.

The only decision Goyo ever made that affected the story? The idea for the battle at Tirad Pass. It's the one and only decision his character makes throughout the entire film.

And no, he didn't decide to marry Remedios in that masterful and beautifully-done party dance scene (one of the best sequences I've ever seen in a film, by the way). Marrying her was a motivation, one that he did not show any progress towards realizing as he casually stumbles through following Aguinaldo towards the north.

Again, beautiful production. The main character, was just terribly written. José Alejandrino was the true main character because that character had the most agency of anyone in the film.


But I have high hopes for the next one in the trilogy (will it be about Manuel Quezon?). So, for it's one fault I would consider Goyo the Empire Strikes Back of the three because in many ways, it's still a well-done film.

I really liked the film. more than Heneral Luna. The Tirad Pass scene was great. Without reading any background info before watching this, I was able to understand what was happening..the military strategy and stuff.. really effective sequence. searching through the credits though, I wasn't able to see if they did really shoot in Tirad Pass or not... the movie was a tad too long though clocking at 2hrs and 40min.  don't miss the mid credit scene, an announcement to the next character of the trilogy...

Finally saw this in Netflix, I found Heneral Luna far more superior than this one. There's a lot of face palm moments here for some characters situations, which I think what really happened during that time. I'm not complaining tho, this is more human compared to that other super-hero film by Carlo J. Caparas. Jerrold Tarog be like "Here's our local hero Gregorio del Pilar a.k.a GOYO........ Impressed?"  ;D

That last credit scene Goyo running around doing nothing is hilarious ;D

I hope Jerrold Tarog can complete his "Rise and fall of Emilio Aguinaldo" Trilogy.
